You are such a good thinker and planner! Hmmm. That would be a good class you could take and even become a professional planner and a professional questioner who comes up with ideas to check out before making a purchase. Would that be a professional shopper?

When I travel any other way it's all carry on luggage. You should have seen it when I use to travel by train for a 10 day vacation for myself and my 2 kids. I packed for the 3 of us in 2 carry on suitcases. I also hate to check in luggage. The whole key to making it work, make sure you check into a hotel with self laundry facilities. We find one day and only takes a little over an hour of our time to do laundry and you got clean clothes for the rest of the vacation. Basic clothes and shoes to mix and match where it doesn't appear you are wearing the same thing all the time.
I have been doing that for over 20 years because the first time I flew to Vegas I over packed and was miserable lugging all that luggage around. I was hurting all over and back went out! I learned right then and there and never again! =)
